Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Cell Culture Media training will review the different performance parameters and describe challenge test results which have been found in a comparison study of multiple 0.1 micron rated filters.

Commonly 0.1 micron rated membrane filters are used to filter cell culture media. The importance of such filter systems increased due to recent increases in cell culture contaminations by Mycoplasma. Nevertheless, since there is no standard challenge test 0.1 micron rated filters are not comparable to each other and the performance of these filters vary greatly. Performance does not only mean unspecific adsorption and total throughput parameters but also retentively. The talk will review the different performance parameters and describe challenge test results which have been found in a comparison study of multiple 0.1 micron rated filters.

Areas Covered in the seminar:
  • What performance variations in total throughput exist due to different media compositions.
  • What process parameters or membrane structures influence retentivity of Mycoplasma.
  • What new activities are established to tackle the contamination problem.
  • What to validate or how does one get retention assurance.
  • How to size a filter system.
  • Will there be a standard challenge test for 0.1 micron rated filters.
  • Facts & Figures on Mycoplasma contaminations.

Who Will Benefit:
This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies that need to validate their sterilizing grade liquid filters within the pharmaceutical and biotech processes. The employees who will benefit include:
  • End-users of sterilizing grade filters
  • Validation manager or specialists
  • Regulatory manager or support
  • Quality assurance manager
  • Regulatory agency personnel
  • Consultants
